The falls follow an unprecedented period of wet weather in Cornwall, and the county council is urging walkers to take extra care. There are currently 18 footpath closures on the South West Coast Path alone, and many may still be closed during the holiday season.
The area from Lizard to the Tamar is the most badly affected.
– David Attwell, Principal Countryside Officer, Cornwall Council
Council staff can't recall a more challenging time for the management of beaches or the footpath network across Cornwall.
